Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul and Tim Duncan were named as the Western Conference All-Star Reserves.
It was inevitable the Western Conference would have a couple snubs. DeMarcus Cousins and Damian Lillard have to be the first two guys to come to mind here with Tim Duncan earning his spot more on his career resume. Lillard or Cousins will replace Kobe Bryant (shoulder) while Mike Conley is also another player who is having an All-Star caliber season. Jan 29 - 7:18 PM

Klay Thompson stayed hot vs. the Bulls on Tuesday, scoring a team-high 30 points on 13-of-27 shooting with four 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in a disappointing overtime loss.

Thompson's usage rate is through the roof recently. He's averaging 35.0 points over the Warriors' past four games, on an average of 23.0 field goals and 5.8 free throw attempts per game. He's pouring in 3.2 triples per game this season, on 45.8 percent shooting beyond the arc, a ridiculous percentage which trails only Courtney Lee (46.4 percent) and Kyle Korver (53.1 percent). Those numbers are unquestionably elite.

Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, Kyle Korver, Wes Matthews and J.J. Redick are five of the six participants in the 3-point contest during All Star Weekend.

We chose to give Klay the blurb because of his historic night but this is as loaded of a field as we've seen in years. Who will the mystery sixth person be? We're hoping for Kendrick Perkins, but we'll settle for Big Baby.
Jan 27 - 12:37 AM

Klay Thompson scored 31 points to lead the Warriors in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding two boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

It's incredible to think that Thompson was able to score 37 points in a quarter during Friday's game over the Kings, so his owners might be starting to feel a little greedy and are probably yawning at this stat line. It's going to be interesting to see who ends up starting in the All-Star game in place of Kobe Bryant (shoulder), as James Harden and Klay Thompson are locked in an exciting battle to take home the honors. Keep Thompson active in your lineup and enjoy the show.
Jan 25 - 10:55 PM

Klay Thompson set an NBA record with 37 points in the third quarter of Friday's win over the Kings, finishing with an NBA season-high tying 52 points on 16-of-25 shooting, two rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks.

Thompson hit 11 3-pointers on 15 attempts and 9-of-10 from the line, setting a slew of records in the process. He did not miss on 13 field goal attempts in the third quarter with nine of them coming from beyond the arc, with each one setting the wild Oracle crowd into a deeper euphoric frenzy. It was the most points scored in a quarter in NBA history, and you might remember where you were five years down the road the next time somebody threatens it. And yes, it's the stat line of the year so far.
Jan 24 - 1:08 AM

Klay Thompson hit 10-of-21 shots and three more 3-pointers for 27 points, three rebounds, five assists and four steals in Wednesday's impressive win over the Rockets.

Look for Thompson to be a coach's pick for the Western All-Star Team, as he's been getting it done at both ends of the court all season long. The Warriors won their 17th straight game at home, setting a franchise record.
Jan 22 - 1:53 AM

Klay Thompson scored 22 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers during a 122-79 blowout victory over the Nuggets on Monday.

He has multiple 3-pointers in 18 consecutive games. Even before this gem, 2015 has been extremely kind to Klay with averages of 24.1 points, 3.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.0 steals and 3.5 triples on 53.5 percent from the field and 84.4 percent from the line. He belongs in the All-Star Game.
Jan 19 - 7:59 PM

Klay Thompson started hot against the Rockets on Saturday, making 9-of-15 from the field for 27 points with five rebounds, two assist, one steal, five blocks and three 3-pointers.

His five blocks were a career high and he did a fantastic job on James Harden. Thompson has avoided a slump for basically the entire season and is hot over his last five, averaging 22.8 points, 4.2 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.6 blocks, 0.8 steals and 3.0 triples on 51.9 percent from the field. Good thing the Warriors didn't trade him for Kevin Love.
Jan 18 - 12:48 AM

Klay Thompson scored 32 points on 12-of-22 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and three treys in the Warriors' road loss to the Thunder on Friday.

Thompson can get lost in the shuffle with Steph Curry (19 points, six assists, two threes, two steals) leading fantasy leagues, but he's a late first-round guy himself.
Jan 17 - 12:43 AM

Klay Thompson had seven stitches removed from his forehead, and he will play on Friday vs. OKC.

Thompson is averaging 21.3 points, 3.0 assists, 3.0 three-pointers, and 1.2 steals per game this season, and he's obviously a must-start option every time he's in uniform. Get him active.
Jan 16 - 1:11 PM

Klay Thompson scored 12 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and three steals on Tuesday before sitting out the fourth quarter of an easy win in Utah.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 27 points and 11 assists, and they flipped the switch to auto-pilot after scoring 44 points in the third quarter. Thompson scored 40 points and 24 points in his previous two games, and at least he'll be well rested when Golden State seeks their eighth straight victory on Wednesday.
Jan 13 - 11:36 PM

Klay Thompson put on a clinic against the Pacers during a 117-102 win on Wednesday, making 14-of-25 from the field for 40 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers.

He was putting the ball on the floor and doing it all in halfcourt sets. Thompson's six-trey night moved him to 3.0 per game on the season to join Stephen Curry and Wesley Matthews as the only players in the NBA to reach that plateau. He's putting up first-round value on the season and nobody in Oakland is complaining about that max deal these days.
Jan 8 - 2:31 AM

Klay Thompson scored a team-high 15 points against the Clippers on Thursday with three rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

His output in defense and dimes has really been the bigger reason why he's posting first-round value in standard fantasy leagues. Of course, it does help that he has career-high scoring and rebound averages, and really the only negative is that he missed his first game due to injury this season. That's obviously a nit-picking negative and his fantasy owners can expect him to keep it going all season.

Klay Thompson scored 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Warriors' 128-108 cakewalk win over the Kings on Monday.

Thompson and Co. barely looked like they were into the game and still got their numbers against a Kings team that looks overwhelmed with drama in the front office. Stephen Curry scored 12 points with 11 assists and three steals as he let others take charge, Draymond Green did his thing with six points, eight boards, four assists, three steals and two blocks, and Harrison Barnes wasn't really needed with eight points, eight boards and one steal in the blowout.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 02:38:00 AM

Klay Thompson hit 8-of-16 shots for 22 points, two rebounds, a steal, a block and four more 3-pointers as the Warriors finally saw their 16-game winning streak come to an end after a 105-98 loss at Memphis.

While you won't often hear Thompson's name in the MVP conversation, it should probably be included in a list that will include John Wall, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, James Harden, Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis, Kyle Lowry and a few others. He's averaging 21.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.9 3-pointers on the season, with shooting percentages of 45 percent from the floor, 43 percent from downtown and 87 percent from the line. And for good measure, he's also averaging just 2.2 turnovers per game. Stud.
